I’m trying to eat healthier and rely less on take out, though I hate cooking. However, I’m lacking some basic cooking stuff (my last roommate stole the few things I did have). The pan set linked is something on my list that would help a lot. (There’s also other smaller things on my wishlist under the “Kitchen” list (default list) that would also help a lot.

Yup – LEARN TO COOK.

It’s a healthier way to eat.
Your next potential S/O is going to love it when you know how to cook and when you do it for them.
It’s a cheaper way to eat.

As for browsing the subs… yeah. I keep /r/food open most days, and just browse through it, then I’m snacking on whatever I have in my snacking drawer at work.

For anyone that doesn’t know how to cook, I’d highly recommend looking up 5 ingredient recipes. AllRecipes has a great section of them. So does Food.com. And TasteofHome. While they may not all be massive bulking meals, they’re a great collection of recipes to get started with.

Get yourself the following to start yourself off: A few mixing bowls, some wooden spoons and some spatulas, a decent pot and pan set – this Amazon Basics set will get you started and last you awhile. And get yourself a cast iron pan and LEARN HOW TO TAKE CARE OF IT.

As for your cupboard – this is one of the most important sections of your kitchen in my personal opinion (grew up under a professional chef and was accepted to a Culinary Arts school, along with working in kitchens for a lot of my younger years…):

  • Basil
  • Bay Leafs
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Chili Powder
  • Cumin
  • Onion Powder
  • Oregano
  • Paprika
  • Parsley – Dried
  • Pepper
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Rosemary – Dried
  • Thyme – Dried
  • Salt

When it comes to spices – DON’T BUY A GIFT SET – these are massively overpriced. Kroger / Pick N Save has $1.00 jars of everything above, and you’re not going to go through them very quickly as a beginner. Follow your recipes, and learn what you like when it comes to seasoning. Personally, I find a lot of recipes online have little flavor, so I use a mixture of a lot up there, but I’ve learned over time how to pizzaz up a dish, and you will too over time.

Also, over time, you may find a recipe you want to try and you don’t have the spices for it (Indian is one of them), keep in mind that these spices can be used in a lot of different cuisines, so don’t be scared to pick it up and tinker with it. Garam Masala is used in Chicken Tikka and many many many other Indian Dishes, but it also is a great way to change your eggs up in the morning.

Sorry for the rant… if you have questions, I’m always here to help on the cooking front, one thing that I’m apparently quite good at, or so I’ve been told.
